Bronze Czech glass beads in 4mm faceted and round. Also some size 11 seed beads for embellishment. Bag is about 7" wide by 5" tall.
What was your inspiration?
Those bad bad beads! Those small precious little glass gems just make me want to create.
What are you most proud of?
In this bag my challenge was figuring out how to make a bag that was stiff at the top and bottom while maintaining the rich flexibility of the stitch in the rest of the purse.
It took a LOT of trial and error.
Tutorial to follow soon!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just start beading with some beads you love and let the beads guide your design.
